i2b2 and REDCap are two widely adopted solutions respectively to facilitate data re-use for research purpose and to manage non-for-profit research studies. REDCap provides the design specifications to build a web service used to import data from an external source with a procedure called DDP. In this work we have developed a web service that implements these specifications in order to import data from i2b2. Our approach has been tested with a real REDCap study.
